move the router away from the board when not moving along the edge, restart a little behind where you left off....

Smile Turn down the router speed

If you have an adjustable speed router motor, try turning down the speed. I had some issues routing some maple recently and found that if I turned down the speed, it did not burn as much.

Agree with turning down router speed. Cherry burns pretty easy too. Also don't route to the the full depth. Make the final pass so that it takes off very small amount of material.

Hi Dan - I also agree with turning down the speed a little, also make sure the bit is clean. A dirty bit will run hotter.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
